DESCRIPTION

KAME software package is a result of joint work of several IPv6 researchers in Japan, to provide reference implementation of IPv6 to Berkeley Software Distribution (Bx) derived system such as
.Bsx ,
.Fx ,
.Nx and
.Ox (in alphabetical order).

KAME kit consists of IPv6/IPsec-ready kernel, application, daemons, header files and libraries.

HIGHLIGHTS

Following are some of highlights of this implementation.

Note: features not yet integrated into
.Fx are marked with the (-) sign.

Kernel

IPv6 and IPsec protocol stacks are implemented and available. See below for conformance to standards and/or internet drafts.

Plug and Play and protocol stack/interface configuration

ndp(8), rrenumd(8), rtadvd(8), rtsol(8), rtsold(8).

Routing

rip6query(8), route6d(8).

Multicast (includes routing and utilities)

mchat(1) (-), ifmcstat(8), pim6dd 8(ports/net/pim6dd), pim6sd 8(ports/net/pim6sd), pim6stat(8).

Transition Tools

Two IPv4 to IPv6 transition tools are available. TCP relay translator, FAITH (faithd(8)) and SIIT IPv6-to-v4 header translator implementation (ptrconfig(8)). ptrconfig(8) is not yet integrated into
.Fx .

IPsec and tunnelling

ipsec(4), racoon 8(ports/security/racoon), setkey(8).

Dozen of existing tools are modified for IPsec support, like ping(8).

Utilities/Diagnosis

v6test(1) (-), ping6(8), traceroute6(8).

Dozen of existing utilities are modified for IPv6/IPsec support, like ftp(1) and/or telnet(1).

Application Daemons

inetd(8) modified for IPv4/v6 support, or IPv6-only inet6d(8) (-) is supplied.

Dozen of existing daemons are modified for IPv6/IPsec support, like ftpd(8) and/or telnetd(8).

DOCUMENTATION

Although some of documentations have not modified yet, program itself may be heavily modified. Following lists are not complete, but give you some idea what kind of new software modules are available, or, modifications are made. Please refer to each manual page for detail.

Installation and basic usage documentations

Please read the following files in the directories /usr/share/doc/IPv6 and /usr/share/examples/IPv6 to get a basic idea of (and installation methods for KAME. You also can check out the IPv6 and IPsec chapters in the
.Fx handbook. Also check latest status of project at web page:
http://www.kame.net/. (Hope you can see a "Dancing Turtle" :-))

APIs introduced or modified

if_indextoname(3), getipnodebyname(3), gethostbyname(3), rresvport_af(3), hosts_ctl(3), ipsec_get_policylen(3), getnameinfo(3), freeaddrinfo(3), getaddrinfo(3), pcap(3), getipnodebyaddr(3), resolver(3), ipsec_strerror(3), gai_strerror(3), hosts_access(3), request_set(3), request_init(3), freehostent(3), if_nameindex(3), if_freenameindex(3), if_nametoindex(3), ipsec_dump_policy(3), ipsec_set_policy(3)

Added/modified/renamed features and tools

Please consult the manpages referred above.
